Jason Segel didn’t know Marshall’s dad was going to die on How I Met Your Mother until they filmed the scene, so the final cut featured his genuine reaction.

On The Haunting of Hill House, when Theo and Shirley were startled by Nell’s ghost in the car, the scene consists of Kate Siegel and Elizabeth Reaser’s genuine reactions — Victoria Pedretti made her entrance sooner than they thought.
